Catching sight of a cat on the CSUB campus is not
an uncommon occurrence. It is important to recognize that
these animals are wild or abandoned and should not be approached.
Never attempt to pick up a kitten or cat that appears tame,
because abandoned cats are very likely to panic and hurt
you trying to get away. Please do the following if you are
concerned about the well-being of a cat.
Your cooperation is greatly appreciated by the CSUB Safety
